Followed by Q and A and break out rooms to network


Any age from 10 - Adult. We are including children here because they have to learn to approach adults in order to network and audition. FOR ACTORS, CREW, DIRECTORS,  PRODUCERS, WRITERS.


Corona has been a difficult time for us all with film/tv sets and theatres closing down, so now is the time to kickstart a re entry into the business. Keep learning and honing your skills.


So many actors, crew and film makers write posts about not getting enough work, but it's opening up again now and so when you do get that audition it can be very competitive so let's learn to nail it.

I onlt learnt a technique myself a year ago and having applied it am more busy in lockdown than I have ever been.


 ( child aged 10-16 can accompany you on your ticket) £15

Also due to the corona linked lack of work anyone who really wants to come but is in a difficult situation financially we are offering 2 FREE PLACES. Just message me in confidence. Scroll down to book by paypal.

Casting/Showreel Workshop


It looks super. Thank you so much for all your hard work in creating this - proud to have it on Spotlight, thank you - Lucas Ward -


I just wanted to say thank you, Jarrett (age 11) really enjoyed the workshop, met some lovely people and had fun.  He certainly learnt a lot from you and David in one day, not only about techniques but also the demands and expectations of the business, and the level of competition out there! - Lynn Mee, - Epsom, Surrey


Emily (age 18) really enjoyed today, thank you.  She was buzzing with how she can improve by keeping herself in the room with interesting chat, and revealling her personality as a help in landing a part. David had so much knowledge of the right agents to go for and how Emily should market herself.  It was a real eye opener. Emily has been to other casting workshops but no-one has ever told her all this before.   Margaret James- London


Ollie (age 17)I would like to thank you for the support given to me yesterday. It was also a real eye-opener and I really learnt more from myself as a performer.  You helped me understand that I am a 'product' and should be marketing myself to help me get the best chance of success. I want to thank David and Jane for their advice as it has been strongly reflected on, thank you! And see you in the summer for the showreel workshop. Ollie Bridgewater - Birmingham


 Got my first paid role in a short film following your workshop . The Director said he loved my showreel- Dan (40's)

SHOWREEL WORKSHOPS - SE LONDON(zone6) SUNDAY 6 DEC - £250 1 place left special discount £175 til end of 2020  - full day - 3 scenes, request period or contemporary scenes or a mix. Its important to:

1. Make a 2 to 2 and half minute showreel that shows your skills off best to CD's

2. Play 3 different types, that define your playing abilities.

It is not good to say I can play anything- You must work on 2-3 types: ie bitch, ditsy girlfriend, hard, cold, intelligent officer, cute girl, troubled girl etc. Nasty streak, kind, dopey father/husband, abrasive business man, troubled boy, etc etc.

Together we decide what types you think you are- then 3 scripts are selected for you, written by me or other scriptwriters.


I film on a Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4K with a separate cinematographer and some lighting. The majority go for this and we produce high quality showreels from this option. Minimum 4 in the group. Usual price £250 per day - If you can get together 6 + persons I will travel anywhere in the country to film you!


If you want me to bring in special lighting, (period or special costume), sound and makeup, hair -the price of the showreel is £400 per person, minimum 4 in the group. 3 scenes, period or contemporary, separate cinematographer.


If you want a stand alone showreel, that is only you in the workshop, where I get other actors in to play opposite you and pay them a small fee to do this

price £600 for me to make and edit. 3 scenes, separate cinematographer., makeup and hair artist.


Please note that for child showreels there is not a waiting area so parents are requested to drop off and pick up the children. There are cafes and shops nearby.


Please note that we are unable to give the full edited scenes for you to edit further. We prefer to edit ourselves any material filmed by Lumino Films. However we are happy to add other extra scenes at no charge to your showreel.


We are happy to make small amendments or reorder scenes once more after the final edit is sent to you. However we will not refilm scenes on another day without charge.
